    Its Ehlers-Danlos Awareness Month

    Yes it is that time of the year again when all of my illnesses have their awareness month! This year I thought I would concentrate on one illness a week or I might get overwhelmed. So this week its Ehlers-Danlos awareness month and hopefully helping you to understand it a little better. Raising awareness is why I started this blog back in 2016, I wanted to share how my illnesses affected me and how I dealt with them in a spiritual way. Since then my diagnoses have changed and so has my spiritual path, but the raising awareness never has. To me, sharing my journey is important, it doesn’t matter…

    Chronic Migraines

    Chronic migraines are a problem for so many people, and something I have suffered from for a long time myself. I thought it was about time I did an article about triggers and how I deal with them. In doing this I hope I will help you if you also suffer. I have often spoke about migraines here on the blog, and how they affect me, but also affect 1 in every 5 women and around 1 in every 15 men. Because of this fact, which is shocking to me, I wanted to write a little about triggers and how I cope with them. Lets be honest most doctors are…

    Self care for carers

    I think the importance of self care for carers cannot be underestimated, you cannot keep giving without looking after yourself as well. So as a disabled person with a carer (my husband) who is also a carer (my mom), I thought we would talk about why we should look after ourselves as much as possible. As you know me and my husband sold our home to move in with my mom to look after her and so she was not always on her own. I never thought I would move back to my childhood home, and it has not been easy to do, however now we have had our garage…

    Body positivity when disabled

    Body positivity when disabled is not easy, everything in media and in society in general is negative about disability, most of the time we are kind of forgotten. Otherwise we can be made to feel guilty or judged by how we look and not by the illnesses we have. So the weather has changed, and spring has sprung, though the last few days we have had snow, so I have of course changed all my clothes over from winter to summer. I was excited to get back to my floral dresses and bright colours, but as I started to try things on I noticed that a lot of them were…

    Finding true happiness through mindfulness

    I often talk about mindfulness because honestly it has changed my life in so many ways I don’t know how I got by before I found it. The truth is that I wasn’t happy and until we start to take control of our thoughts and not just try to avoid them we never will be. Finding true happiness through mindfulness can happen it just takes patience and work. Now I am not saying mindfulness is a cure for any mental health problem, it did not cure mine I still have an anxiety disorder and depression. However, learning to be in the moment so you can notice when your mind starts…

    What Is A Naturopathic Doctor And Why Should You See One?

    A Naturopathic doctor is a doctor that specializes in alternative medicines and aims to deal with disease and illness at the level of mind, body, and spirit. Although some of the treatments conflict with the accepted treatments used in standard medicine, Naturopathic doctors take a more holistic approach to health and consider all factors together instead of focusing on one specific area.  Many people prefer seeing a Naturopathic doctor and they respond better to alternative treatments, but it’s always a good idea to be cautious where your health is concerned. If you are interested in exploring alternatives, these are some of the reasons why you should consider seeing a Naturopathic…

    Novice Witch Thoughts

    So, the last week has been a bit of a rollercoaster and I’ve been having a lot of novice witch thoughts so let’s talk it out. It’s important to always be open to learning and changing your direction so if you have been doing these things just do some research. As you all know I have spent a good 20years or so studying yoga and mindfulness, doing meditations and working with balancing my chakras. As I moved into my witchcraft journey, I started to think about how I could bring this practice into my magical life. How I could embrace my love for India and the things that Buddhism and…

    How To Deal With Loss Spiritually

    The loss of a loved one is never easy. No matter if they passed away suddenly or have a terminal illness, you are never quite prepared and it is no easier. And loss doesn’t always have to be due to death, it could also be from something such as them moving away, or suffering from an illness such as dementia where they don’t remember you, or perhaps a divorce. Losing contact with somebody that you were very close to will hit hard and if you are spiritual you can feel like you have been abandoned. Being a spiritual person doesn’t mean that you will always be protected and you need…

    Health Update

    I always find these posts important to write but difficult to write, I am not sure why but here is a health update. I will also be chatting a little about how being a carer has affected me. I have definitely found recently that I have been struggling more and I think it is probably a mixture of things. Stress can definitely contribute to chronic illness symptoms; and we are having building work at out house right now. This is definitely a big factor in my recent flare and how my anxiety has been. However, I also think being a carer has contributed to my fatigue in a big way,…
